There is no adjustment when changing pads. How do you compress the piston? If it's electric parking brake, then you can't, you HAVE to take it to a VW shop. If it's not, then you screw in the back pistons, and pushing in the front one's with a C clamp or something.

How do you adjust parking brake


The parking brake lever usually activates a cable that is attached to the rear drum brake. You can look for the connection at the parking break lever in the car and there many be an adjustment nut that you can tighten - this is only a small adjustment as is getting under the vehicle and just tighten up the nut. Typically, if the parking break does set the break firmly with a small push - pull (depending on the type) is means your break pads are getting worn down.

Problems with breaks


The caliper is bolted on by sliding pins that allow the caliper to adjust itself. I would assume the sliding pins are stuck. The bolts slide inside the carrier that holds the calipers.

I have 2000 toyota corolla. Today I had rear wheel cylinder (both) changed. Also the break shoes and Pads (front). After that change, My parking break is not working. Will the parking break is going to...


the guy who knows the answer to that question is the guy who put the brakes back together. he should have adjusted the shoes out, or hopefully replaced them and adjusted them, so that the brakes are good and hence the parking brake will also be good. if not then something is amiss. but applying the parking brakes does theoretically turn the adjuster so as to move the shoes out.

I have changed both rear callipers as the handbreak adjustment arms were seazed I also changed both disks and pads but the hand break won't grip? Do I need to adjust the cable tension under the car?


This should have electric hand brake.

Check with dealership as some models of Jaguar have a safety recall for rear brakes being applied without notice and at speed !

Since replacing rear pads, only both rear breaks are on, slightly truck will not roll freely wasupppppppp with that


If I am correct that truck has rear drum breaks? If this is the case the adjusters sound as if they were not brought in enough for proper clearance between the drums and shoes. If this is it I'd remove the rear drums and adjust for proper clearance (there should be no drag with drum breaks. If they are disk breaks I'd say the calipers are stuck and keeping tight on the discs; if this is the case I'd replace that calipers with new or rebuilt units.
I hope this may have helped,

HOW DO YOU CHANGE REAR BREAK PADS ON A 1997 CHEVY SUBURBAN?


Unlike the front pads where you only have to push the caliper piston in to replace the pads,the rear caliper pistons have to be turned clockwise to screw them back in.Hint: only go as far as nessesary to get the pads to clear the rotor as this is also the adjustment for the emergency brake.Good luck,
